PHOENIX -- Didi Gregorius was sore and had a tinge of a headache Saturday but otherwise appeared to have come out unscathed from his scary beaning Friday night. At the same time, he has not been cleared to play and was to see the Diamondbacks doctor again Saturday afternoon.
Close to normal? he parroted a reporters question.
From being hit in the head yesterday to today, I dont think I would be close to normal right away. Probably take a couple of days, I think. Im waiting for the doc to see what is going to happen.
Gregorius was hit in the right temple by a 94 mph fastball from Colorado left-hander Josh Outman, and he lay in the left-handed batters box for several minutes before sitting up and then leaving under his own power. Outman was obviously shaken after the incident, but Gregorius said he harbored no ill will.
No, no, no, no, no. I dont think he did it on purpose, so everything is good, everything is fine. There was obviously no reason. I already had two strikes, Gregori...
